He said this on the Espreso TV channel.

"It is worth emphasising that Russian forces lost the battle for Avdiivka in 2023. They suffered huge losses in manpower and equipment. This is worth talking about. However, of course, we are not going to rest and are preparing for new Russian offensives in the Avdiivka sector. We are well aware that the enemy wants to take revenge. They are amassing forces and reserves to resume their offensive on Avdiivka," said Morozov.

According to Morozov, Russia is amassing forces and means to resume offensive actions in the Avdiivka sector.

“Russian forces significantly weakened their offensive in the Avdiivka sector when the frosts hit and are trying to compensate by intensifying attacks with guided aerial bombs. In particular, over the past few weeks, they have launched more than 250 strikes with such bombs. They lost all the battles for Avdiivka and are now planning to take revenge. They are amassing a fairly powerful reserve of forces and equipment in the temporarily occupied Donetsk and Makiivka. These are huge brigades and units of the so-called Storm Z, as well as a powerful armoured fist. Therefore, the Defence Forces in the Avdiivka sector are ready to respond to all the Russian actions. We continue to fight for Avdiivka," he added.

  • On January 12, the Russian army dropped a guided aerial bomb on a house in Avdiivka, Donetsk region, killing a civilian.
  • On January 15, Vadym Filashkin, head of the Donetsk Regional Military Administration, said that in the first 2 weeks of 2024, Russia dropped about 250 guided bombs on Avdiivka, Donetsk region. At the same time, the city suffered 146 airstrikes in 2023.
